Corton Grand Cru "Les Paulandes" 2005, Comte Senard
This mature Corton Grand Cru tasted at the domaine in Aloxe has a complex bouquet which is redolent of roast pheasant, cloves, ripe red currant. It's a warm autumnal nose which is propelled forward by fresh red berries. Superbly pinot. On the palate, fresh, long, tingling. Beaucoup de puissance. A clear trace of iron. Must be kept for another 2 years to fully expand. Thrilling. Scores 22-25/30 for a Corton Grand Cru.
